Co-processing of biomass in petroleum refineries is a promising approach for biofuel production. In this work fluid catalytic cracking of residue from a co-pyrolysis with sawdust and VGO (1:2) was investigated. The pyrolysis oil residue with a boiling range bigger than 350 °C was mixed in different ratios with VGO and could be processed successfully up to 20 m%. Crack gas amounts increased while gasoline and total fuel yields decreased compared to VGO cracking. The gasoline obtained has a high octane number and is oxygen free.
